Distracted Driving Violations

Texting Behind The Wheel Is A Primary Offense In South Carolina. Do You Know What That Means?

Distracted driving can take many forms — eating, using GPS navigation or texting while driving are common examples.

But texting behind the wheel is a primary offense. This means that if an officer sees you texting behind the wheel, he or she call pull you over even if you didn't speed, run a stop sign or commit any other traffic violation.

And, given the increase in distracted driving accidents, police officers are unlikely to show mercy to drivers found engaging in such action.

You could face points on your driver's license and steep insurance rate increases for this offense.
